John Cherubini designed several boat for Hunter in the 70's and early 80's and these are often referred to as Cherubini Hunters. Many say that they are some of the best sailing boats that Hunter ever built. Starting with the 25, they were followed by the 27, 30, 33, and 37. The 33 is the same design as the Raider 33, though the Raider is a better built boat.
Now to the heart of the matter. A Cherubini is a Cherubini is a Cherubini. John designed a 44 Ketch and a 48 Schooner and they were built by his brother Fritz and his son Lee with the help of various other family
members. To call a Cherubini Hunter a Cherubini is like saying that any random sports car is a Ferrari. They are in totally different animals
. A cherubini is a go anywhere bluewater cruiser that is equally at home on the Chesapeake Bay
. Don't know any sane individuals that would feel as safe offshore
in any Hunter in stormy conditions.
